"Talk"

'Thoughts'


...

Fingers typed flawlessly at the laptop resting in his lap, but his eyes were focused on a dazzling beauty before him. He watched as she lifted her head out of the water, her fingers reaching to brush her hair behind her. Turning her head, she smiled at him and swam towards him.

"Why don't you come and join me Seto?" She said as she began to rest beside him.

"Though it is a tempting offer, I must decline." He said, watching a drop slide down her swan like neck. "I need to finish this." She lifted her magnificent body out of water and sat beside him on the edge of the pool. A small pout appeared on her rosy lips, and he had to resist the urge to bruise those lips with his lips.

"Your loss." She said, shrugging. "We could have had so much fun together." She batted her eyelashes at him seductively, and he suppressed a groan. It was hard enough for him to concentrate with her sitting so close to him. Instead of answering, he continued typing, trying to ignore the wet beauty beside him. However, when he felt her lips enclose around his earlobe, it became quite a struggle to keep his control.

"Tea." He groaned. "Stop it." She only smirked and placed her wet hand on his bare chest.

"Do you really want me to stop?" She whispered hotly in his ear, her hand tracing circles on his chest. With every passing second, he could feel his control slipping.

"Tea." He said in a warning tone, but she wasn't one to be deterred by his weak threats. She boldly placed a hot wet kiss on his neck and sucked not too gently. Growling, he threw the laptop off his lap and placed her instead. She smirked, knowing she had gotten what she had wanted. With animalistic passion, Seto covered her lips with his, forcefully parting hers with his tongue. She moaned loudly and pressed her body against his. Overcome with desire, Seto's hands reached towards the string that held her small bikini tied. But as soon as she felt his hand on her back, she pulled away. Confused, Seto stared at her.

"I'm tired Seto." She said.

"What?" Shock was written all over his face. "What do you mean?" She sighed and got out of his lap to sit beside him.

"I'm tired." She said in a frustrated tone. "I'm tired of all this. I want something more."

"More?" He raised an eyebrow. "Tea, you are the most popular and successful dancer in Japan. You are young, beautiful, and married to the wealthiest, intelligent, successful, and powerful, not to mention the most handsome man in the whole world. What more could you want?" She smiled at his words.

"I want… a child." Her words nearly caused him to fall into the pool.

"WHAT?" Where had that come from?

"A child." She said, annoyed at his reaction. "As in a baby."

"… Why?" He finally found his voice after a considerable pause.

"What kind of question is that?" She countered with a question of her own. His response was a confused stare so she continued. "Seto, you're right. I do have everything, more than I had dreamed of. I am the luckiest woman on this planet because I have caring friends, a loving, not to mention 'the most handsome man in the whole world' as my husband." He smirked at her words. "But…" Yes, the dreaded 'but'. How he hated 'but'.

"But what?" He asked kindly, caressing her cheek.

"But I still feel that there is something missing. I feel empty and incomplete." She rested her head on his shoulder and sighed. "I don't want to feel that way."

"So you think a child will fill up the emptiness inside you… and complete you?" He said in an emotionless tone.

"Yes." She said excitedly, raising her head and staring at him with twinkling eyes. "And it'll be perfect for us too."

"Us?" He said in discomfort. She frowned.

"Yes. Us. Seto, we have been married for 4 years, and it's been just the two of us. I think it's time we made a new addition to this small family. Trust me Seto, a baby will be perfect. It'll be someone I can shower my love upon, and someone you can take pride in." She peeked at him, hoping he would understand he point.

"You have me to shower your love upon, and I have you and Mokuba to take pride in." He pointed out.

"I know. But a child will be different. It'll be your blood."

"Mokuba is my blood too." He had a perfect counter for every point she brought up.

"I know, but this baby will be your son or daughter."

"I pretty much treat Mokuba as my son." Her face fell at his words. It was becoming clear to her now.

"You… don't want a child." She finally said, trying desperately to keep her voice from breaking.

"I don't… know." He said, staring at the pool.

"Seto." She whispered to him, lifting his face to meet her gaze. "What are you afraid of?" Seto turned his face away from her, not wanting to appear weak before her. What she had deduced was correct. He was afraid. He didn't remember much of his blood father, and he didn't want to remember Gozaboro. He was completely foreign to the concept of parenthood, and in his case, fatherhood.

"I … don't know if I'll be good father." He finally said. He had no other choice. She would have guessed it anyway. No matter how hard he tried, he could not keep secrets from her. She could read him like a book.

"That's all?" She asked, eyes wide in surprise. He nodded. She laughed softly and hugged him affectionately, completely confusing Seto. "Silly Seto." She said, smiling. "You don't have to be worried about anything. I can guarantee that you'll be a good father."

"How can you be so sure?" He challenged. Sure he liked the praise, but this one seemed false.

"Because you are a caring person." She stated simply. "Remember, you were reluctant to admit your feelings for me. Then you were shaking in fear at the thought of marrying me. Remember all the doubts, all the fears you had?" He looked away again, embarrassed. "Look at me Seto." She said sternly. "Look at us. We are perfectly happy. And it's not all because of me. It's because of you too. You made an effort to make this work, and it worked. On my wedding day, you promised to be the perfect husband."

"The best there is." He said with a slight smirk, remembering the blessed day.

"Yes." She smiled fondly at the memory. "And I know if you try, you can be the perfect father too."

"I don't know." He said in an unsure tone.

"Seto, if anyone should be afraid, it should be me. I have never had any experience with children. At least you had Mokuba. You were more like a father to that boy than a brother, and he turned out good." She encouraged. He smiled.

"You had experience with kids too." He said, smirking. She gave him a confused stare. "Joey and Tristan." He whistled and she laughed, punching him slightly on the shoulder. He laughed as well.

"So, what do you say?" She asked in a hopeful tone. He stared into space for a while, pretending to think. But form the corner of his eyes; he could see her biting her lip in nervousness and anticipation.

"If it'll make you happy, then I'm willing to give it a try." As soon as the words escaped his mouth, she sealed his mouth with her lips, kissing him madly. He eagerly kissed her back. His hand snaked to her back to untie her bikini, and this time, she allowed him. He smirked against her mouth.

'Finally.'


Seto lay on bed, eyes twinkling with mischief. He was going to have fun tonight. He had conveniently replaced Tea's "conservative" nightgown, thought it was a crime to call that revealing piece of cloth conservative, with a sexy, and downright naughty lingerie he had purchased, just for her. With no other option available, except coming out naked, she would have to wear that. Either way, he would be satisfied.

5…

10…

15…

20 minutes passed and still no sign of his beautiful wife. Patience was turning to panic. What was she doing in there? Why was it taking so long? Gingerly, he got off the bed and walked towards the bathroom.

"Tea?" He called. "Are you in there?" No immediate response had his heart racing.

"Yes." She finally said in a somewhat shaky tone.

"Is everything all right?" He inquired again.

"… Yes. I'll be out shortly." She said. Hesitantly, he stepped away from the door, and sat on the bed, mood ruined considerably. As proclaimed, she soon appeared, wearing that same sexy lingerie. Almost instantly, the mood returned and Seto was leering over her. She, however, was either oblivious to his lustful gaze, or was ignoring it. She slumped on the bed and closed her eyes. This caused suspicion to arise in Seto's mind. What was troubling her? There had been several times during the past two months when her mood would change drastically from happy, to eager, to depressed. He had never inquired before, but today he would.

"Tea." He said, lying down beside her. "What's wrong? Tell me." A deep sigh escaped her lips.

"It's…" She began, but stopped. "It's nothing." Seto was beginning to lose his patience, and all the sexual tension he was feeling was only adding to his agitation. Taking a strong hold of her shoulders, he turned her around so she was facing him. Now Seto noticed that she was crying. Her eyelids were glistening with moisture. All of his anger diffused and gave way to concern.

"Tea, tell me what's wrong." She opened her eyes to look at him before speaking in a cracked voice.

"I just checked…. And…"

Checked what? And what?

"And…" She continued. "I'm not pregnant."

"What? That's it?" He said in an amazed tone. That was what was troubling her? Such a small matter.

'Maybe small to me.' He thought.

"Tea. Stop crying." He said, wiping her tears with a gentle touch. It's nothing to worry about." He assured her.

"Yes it is." She immediately said. "It's been two months. Most woman get pregnant within a few weeks, and find out about their pregnancy."

"You're not like most woman." He whispered soothingly to her, but it seemed to have no effect on her. Fear and sadness still clouded her once bright blue eyes.

"Seto, I'm scared." She whispered. "What if… what if there's something wrong with me?" He bent to kiss her and then brought her body closer to him.

"There's nothing wrong with you. I'm sure."

"Then why?" She questioned against his chest.

"I… I don't know." He replied honestly. Despite all is knowledge; he was completely lost on the topic of pregnancy.

"I'm scared." She said, tears falling again. "I think there's something wrong with me."

"Why would you assume that?" He said. "Maybe the problem is with me." Despite her state, she scoffed.

"You are perfect. There can't be anything wrong with you." A chuckle rumbled deep within his chest.

"You spoil me." He said, kissing her forehead. "But if it'll make you feel any better, we'll go see Dr. Kinimo tomorrow." She silently nodded, and silence filled the air.

"Thanks Seto." Tea said, breaking the silence. "I love you…. and I love this new present too." He smirked, liking where this was leading.

"A thanks won't do. I spent a good amount of money on it, and I expect some sort of...refund." He said in a seductive tone. He felt her smirk against his chest.

"If that's what you want." She said and separated herself from him. Seto watched as she got on top of him. He groaned, feeling her things brush his torso. His hand reached to grab her waist, but she immediately held his large hand in her small one. He gave a curious stare, but she only smirked. Slowly, sliding her body over his, she reached for his other hand. Not quite understanding what was happening, he allowed her to lift his arms above his head. He felt her hands move, but just as he was about to turn his head and look, she firmly pressed her lips against his. He groaned, feeling her tongue force itself into his mouth.

'Rough.' He thought, feeling her press her breasts against his chest. Another pleased groan escaped his lips when he felt her hands run over his abs. Feeling the urge to touch her, he tried to move his hands.

Tried.

His hands were tied to the bedpost. Surprised her glanced at her smirking face. Was this what she was up to? Clever. She had distracted him with her body, and overpowered him. Clever indeed.

"Tonight, I'm in charge." She said seductively, licking his earlobe. He moaned and turned his head to the side to kiss her skin, but she moved away.

"Bad Seto." She chided, lifting her face. "I told you I'm incharge tonight. I guess I'll just have to show you who's the boss here." With that, she lowered her face and licked his racing pulse. Instantly, his hand twitched, wanting to hold her. She only smirked and began her agonizingly slow descent down his perfectly toned body. She kissed every inch of his skin, biting and nipping occasionally while Seto moaned and groaned beneath her.

Normally, it was the other way around, with her under him, writhing and moaning, but tonight was different. She had showed him that she held equal power over his body, as he did over hers. Her tongue snaked out, licking his neck, until she reached his lips again. She kissed him passionately, and slowly, her hands reached for his boxers. His eyes, and her smirk widened.

"You'll never forget this thanks Seto." She whispered hotly. "And neither will I."


Tea sat in Dr. Kinimo's office, holding Seto's hand in a tight grip. They had just completed all the tests and were waiting for the results. After what seemed like hours, Dr. Kinimo appeared, holding some papers in his hand, which they assumed to be their test results. Tea's heartbeat increased drastically, and she squeezed Seto's hand tighter. The doctor came to sit in front of them, staring at each of them intently. Finally, Seto snapped.

"Well, what?" He demanded in an irritated tone.

"Mr. Kaiba, all your tests were perfect. I couldn't detect a single problem with you." He then glanced at Tea's whose face had gone pale. "However, there was something suspicious with Mrs. Kaiba results." The doctor paused there, as if preparing them for what was to come next.

"As you may know, pregnancy is a wonder of nature. Scientists took years to uncover all of the processes and the factors related to it. There are many hormones related to pregnancy, and all of them play an important role from the beginning that is conception, to the end, that is delivery." Seto nodded his head, while Tea only gripped his hand tighter.

"Mrs. Kaiba, you are in perfect health." Tea breathed in relief. "But it appears that you are lacking a hormone that aids in conception." The doctor finished, and Tea gasped.

"Lacking?" Seto questioned.

"Not exactly." The doctor explained. "It is present, but it is in a very scarce quantity. Her body realizes that, and refuses to allow the release of other hormones and allow conception to occur."

"So … what you're … saying … is that…" Tea stuttered, tears already forming in her eyes. The doctor sighed, and spoke.

"You can never become pregnant."
